Agreed. I mention this again because it was touched on in the most recent text update: Ace has, on his own initiative, come up with at least one new type of magical device that could potentially revolutionize warfare in Erfworld. And his ruler, a pompous, hide-bound little traditionalist, doesn't want to hear anything about it because he would prefer that Ace stick to giant teddy bears. And since Slately has, by virtue of his position, actual mind control powers which affect Ace's ability to act freely, Ace generally does stick to giant teddy bears originally designed by another Dollamancer who died many turns before, and he must actively subvert his Duty and risk punishment or disbanding in order to pursue his innovations.
